Tic Tac Toe Stars

I know there are no x’s and o’s, but the three by three layout gave me the feeling of a tic tac toe board. The stars aren’t the main feature in this layout, but they add an extra element of interest.

Star Clusters

Small groups of stars add excitement to a plain layout.

Four Corners

A single set of stars can be a focal point in a larger quilt.  This option has a lot of negative space to show off the quilting.
